Everton skipper Coleman: These 3 youngsters have captaincy potential

Everton skipper Seamus Coleman has no doubts about the leadership qualities of his young teammates.

The defender highlighted Tom Davies, Mason Holgate and Ben Godfrey taking that responsibility - with two having already captained the club in the past.

Coleman told evertontv: "Slowly but surely, we are gathering some more leaders across the squad.

"The younger lads are coming in. Tom [Davies] has captained the club numerous times, Mason [Holgate] has captained the club and is a loud voice in the dressing room.

"Ben Godfrey has come in and is an unbelievable character with a lot of leadership qualities.

"But it's something we all need to do as a group for the bigger picture – every day turn up with the leadership skills. If you are in the team or not, it shouldn't change what we are like as a group."
